Find facial youth

Botox Cosmetics is an FDA-approved injectable that paralyzes motor nerve impulses within muscles by preventing release of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine (ACh). Without ACh triggering nerve impulses within facial muscles, involuntary muscle contractions responsible for skin wrinkling and folding are virtually eliminated, leaving your skin smoother, wrinkle-free and younger-looking. Currently, Botox for men is the most popular, minimally invasive cosmetic procedure performed for men in the U.S. In fact, seven percent of all Botox treatments are done on men seeking to improve the appearance of their facial skin.

BOTOX for Men FAQ's

How is BOTOX used in Men?

A forehead wrinkle treatment that significantly improves moderate to severe glabellar lines (furrows between the brows), Botox® is also approved to reduce the appearance of fine lines extending from the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet). Botox® also works to temporarily decrease excessive armpit perspiration and may help relieve migraines.

What are BOTOX injections like?

Our BOTOX San Diego injections for men wrinkles consist of injections into the muscles responsible for wrinkles and frown lines using a very small needle. Most Botox® treatment sessions take less than 15 minutes, depending on the severity of the wrinkling. Men getting Botox injections report brief, minimal discomfort upon receiving injections. Anesthetic creams or cold packs may be used to numb the injection site if requested. No downtime is associated with Botox injections.

When are results for BOTOX for men visible?

Within a few days, men getting Botox will see improvements in frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles. Reduction of wrinkles generally continues for several weeks, with final results lasting as long as four to five months. However, individual results vary and depend on multiple factors such as skin condition, genetics and severity of wrinkling. Most men need repeat Botox injections every three to four months.

What happens when you stop receiving additional BOTOX injections?

Untreated skin simply returns to its original condition. Frown lines, furrows or crow’s feet will reappear gradually as motor nerve impulses begin contracting skin muscles once again.

Do BOTOX Injections cause side effects?

Common side effects associated with Botox for men include localized tenderness, slight bleeding and temporary bruising. Rarer side effects may be experienced by a small percentage of men: dry mouth, neck pain, blurry vision, drooping eyelids and headache. Your doctor will discuss all side effects that can occur from Botox injections and offer advice about whether you should seek medical attention.

How safe is BOTOX for men?

Botox for men has a well-established safety record. Used for wrinkle reduction as well as other medical issues for nearly 25 years, Botox® is one of the safest, minimally invasive treatments for smoothing facial wrinkles to allow skin to appear rejuvenated and youthful looking.

Before and After BOTOX Treatment

Avoid taking aspirin, NSAIDs, ibuprofen, Vitamin E, fish oil supplements and other anticoagulant medications several days before receiving Botox® injections. Men taking coumadin or warfarin should not be getting Botox injections. Also, do not drink alcohol 24 hours before your treatment.

After administration of Botox®, do not massage or rub the injection sites. Avoid heavy physical activity for at least 24 hours after receiving injections. Your doctor will advise you not to lie down (sitting upright is fine) for around four hours following treatment. The possibility exists that lying down may facilitate the spread of Botox to other parts of the body, which may cause unwanted side effects.

PRACTICE POLICY UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

Updated March 17th, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until April 13th, 2020.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until March 30th.
  • The office will be closed but we will see our urgent follow-ups.
  • We are instituting Virtual Consultations for all potential patients.
  • No patient will ever have any financial recourse for rescheduling their procedures.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • Any exit and entrance from our office are followed by a protocol of changing shoes, scrubs and sanitization.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
